Hi, I'm Krishna.

Here you'll see my inane ramblings mingled with a lot of things I like (family, friends, living things in general, philosophy, books, tea, art, music, religions of all kinds, surfing, baking, puns, and more).

One More Night by Bob Dylan

phantomengineer:

One more night, I will wait for the light
While the wind blows high above the tree
Oh, I miss my darling so
I didn’t mean to see her go
But tonight no light will shine on me

"Depression is stupid and not a thing that makes me a better writer. One time I went a whole year without writing and I stayed in bed and drank. Fuck your Bukowskisms. I want sunlight and love and running down some street I’ve never been on where it’s warm and cool at the same time and I’m smiling. I want nothing to ever be bad again- and I don’t mean that I want a life free of conflict, I mean that I want a life free of meaningless conflict. Not being able to will oneself to take a shower or leave the house is meaningless. There is nothing to be gained, no lesson to be learned from that kind of life. My heart is stale, my prose is stale. Give me fire if you want to hurt me. Give me something I can taste. There’s nothing romantic or mysterious about where I am. There’s nothing here worth holding onto."

it’s interesting but also terrifying to see the ways that capitalism has shaped our language and how we talk about bodies. can you be useful? can you be a productive member of society? can you work? can you make money? that is all this comes back to. so much ableist and fat phobic rhetoric is, at its core, does your body enable you to produce capital. if not, then you are useless and don’t deserve humanity.

"The bourgeoisie loves so-called “positive” types and novels with happy endings since they lull one into thinking that it is fine to simultaneously acquire capital and maintain one’s innocence, to be a beast and still be happy."

Anton Chekhov, in a letter to A.S. Suvorin. (April 13, 1895)

I don’t start taking estrogen ‘til next month, but what the hell - figured I’d get some makeup and some cheap clothes and see how that makes me feel.  I had to take maybe 100 selfies to find a few that weren’t excessively manly looking in some way (mostly the beard showing through the makeup in most lighting situations), but I probably felt the most comfortable I’ve ever felt in my body.  I didn’t expect that just changing clothes would make me feel so much better.

Anyways.  I’ll probably start doing this on a regular basis, even in public, once I amass some decent clothes.  I’m not worried about being read as female and I resent the pressure that I feel to not even bother presenting myself as female until I can pass as such.  I don’t want to put my life on hold - waiting for hormones to take full effect, saving up money for surgeries - just to avoid making people uncomfortable with my gender bending antics.

Reblog if you support transsexuals

cautiously-ironic:

My parents are convinced that everyone is against transgendered individuals and are therefore using that to justify their stopping me from going ahead with my hormone treatment. everyone that reblogs this will go in a book for my parents. Please Help!

Wash away the bad thoughts,
Cleanse your body,
Put on some relaxing music,
Get in to bed,
Breathe."
